Dating tips for parents

dating tips for parents-31

Notice what "dating" seems to mean to your child and then talk about it.

Michelle Anthony, Ph D, a developmental psychologist and learning therapist in Denver, suggests an opening line like: “It sounds like a lot of kids are talking about dating now. ” If you can't tell what dating means to your kid, try discussing dating as shown on TV shows or in movies that are age-appropriate.

Siobhan Freegard, founder of Channel Mum, told The Huffington Post UK: “Dating as a newly-single parent can be daunting, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be exciting too.

Being a solo mum or dad shows you can handle anything life throws at you and that can make you a very attractive to a potential partner.”For many parents re-entering the dating scene, it can feel intimidating that you might meet people who see a child as extra emotional baggage that they aren’t willing to take on, but don’t put yourself down or settle for less.

Talking about relationships once they reach school age is step two. ” Share your values, but be sure to ask your child what he thinks creates a healthy, loving relationship.
